James earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota. His research was focused on brain computer interfaces using EEG signals. His interests lie in the intersection of machine learning and real-time brain recording. James joined the LBCN with the intent to discover how focal brain activity can be harnessed to decode brain function and how to improve it in conditions such as epilepsy.
